TitleCopy Letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to J Goold
Date1 June 1908
Description'Dear Mr Goold,
At a recent meeting of the Soiree Committee it was decided to ask you to re-exhibit your pendulum at the Ladies' Soiree on June 29th. I shall be glad to learn whether you can do so. The Committee expressed the opinion that the programme entry should be of a simple character, stating clearly what is shown by means of the pendulum, so that ordinary visitors can follow the features of the exhibit. Can you kindly therefore supply an entry which shall be of the desired nature.'
